Locked On Suns Friday: News roundup on Marquese Chriss, rookie options, Victor Oladipo and more

We run through notes on Marquese Chriss in Golden State, Deandre Ayton, Mikal Bridges, Ryan McDonough’s original master plan, and preview the next preseason games.

Wondering how the 2016 draft class is doing for the Suns? At least one, Marquese Chriss, seems to be finding solid footing right now with Golden State. We go down memory lane once more.

This news shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, but Deandre Ayton and Mikal Bridges’ third-year team options were picked up today. Both will be long-term fixtures on the Suns.

What was Ryan McDonough’s original draft plan? It might have been unveiled this week. McDonough mentioned on a podcast he was trying to trade up to No. 1 overall in the 2013 draft to select Victor Oladipo. Would things have changed much in the Valley?

We then close out the show looking ahead to the Suns’ next matchups against Portland and Denver.
